4:18 pm
we've tried it with images this computer system and it can actually come back and actually give us accurate answers on the basis of the data we fit the computer can then alerts people to get them out of the water it is an excellent example of where . i've been used in not replacement things but as is a system in getting the work done in a better way the shark spotting and life flow dropping drones have finished their trial periods they'll be patrolling australian beaches for real this summer and those behind them hope to sell their technology worldwide andrew thomas al-jazeera . brisbane. and let's take you through some of the headlines here now to syria now sporadic fighting has moderate temporary ceasefire in the syrian government's campaign to retake rebel controlled areas of the southern city of daraa the u.n.

4:20 pm
more than one million syrians have fled to neighboring lebanon to escape the violence it's now been a week since twelve young footballers and their coach went missing in a cave in the wars in thailand more than a thousand divers soldiers and border guards have joined the search for a new opening to the underground cave complex was discovered on friday raising hopes the boys may still be found alive a ceasefire deal that hopes to end south sudan's civil war has come into force president salva kiir and rebel leader react machar signed the agreement in sudan's capital khartoum on wednesday the united nations envoy to yemen says both the warring parties in a day there have agreed to allow the u.n. to have a role in managing the city's red seaport follows more than two weeks of fighting since the saudi coalition launched a military operation to take the city from hoofy rebels. those are your headlines the news continues after inside story. on counting the cost the european
4:21 pm
union is trying to change we'll look at the reasons why the economic cost of violence in mexico plus the timber companies are accused of in danger the world's second largest rainforest. counting the cost. another humanitarian chief questions myanmar's ability and willingness to take back the he who fled the military crackdown are they destined to remain stranded in overcrowded camps and bonded they this is inside story. and i welcome to the program on the parana the one hundred a probably the most
4:22 pm
friendless people in the world almost ten years after those words were uttered by a u.n. spokeswoman the situation facing what could barely be more da hundreds of thousands of sheltering in camps in bangladesh having fled what rights groups have described as atrocities by myanmar's military. peter moore of the international committee of the red cross has visited nine months racan state where the violent crackdown happened now mother government is going to start repair treating the head to the villages they abandoned but more told al-jazeera that he doesn't think how that's possible at least in the short term for the i.c.r.c. this is still and is at the present moment first and foremost an emergency operation a lot of people have been affected from all the communities and we need also to have even stronger support in facilities from all the authorities in myanmar to be able to operate and to expand our operations the reconsolidation of the
4:23 pm
communities the are bringing back of minimal safety and security for people there is a tall order in the. work of many of the actors of many of the communities as well so we are probably looking at the long term and medium term perspective i don't think that we have yet conditions conducive to large scale return we'll need security arrangements which are embraced by the communities and this is again a political power of this key stakeholders in the me and mar. we certainly appreciate the support that we have for our humanitarian work and we certainly would appreciate if others would join us in a few because again we do believe that this is still an emergency operation where
4:24 pm
a lot of food medical assistance basic assistance is needed for the population stows who are there into those who eventually will come home. well let's bring in our guests now engineer that we have to turn ken president. in the u.k. is the means revenge organization matthew smith is and calling them poor he's the co-founder and chief executive officer of forty five rights that's a nonprofit human rights organization based in southeast asia and joining us from barcelona as robert templer founder and director of the higher education alliance for refugees a very warm welcome to all of you mr turn ken i'm going to start with you despite the reservations from the red cross there is more and more talk the talk about the repair tradition of some seven hundred thousand revenge it continues but how many of them want to return to myanmar and do they have a choice. as far as i know
4:25 pm
i've been i have been to the top three times to bangladesh since august two thousand and seventeen you know the big theme of the review is you know they told me before the i returned they want to see justice and because the our daughter has been raped the our father for brother has been slaughtered in front of them and their should run been bombed alive that is what they told me you know what we have to point out here is they want to return of called the holy land. before they are it on the air want to see this situation need to be aware more than five hundred thousand rolling or if people in our street right now they want to see the situation need to recall the night in them and citizenship and access to health care at first to a degree. and it says to the a business you know as to the restriction are there and on top of that where they were written this is the question because the. village has been bulldogs and you
4:26 pm
know. what do you want to return prison camp this is very clear response from there if you do these big teams when i met them all of those points and greater detail but i want to put your last question to matthew smith in kuala lumpur watch what these refugees these people from myanmar be going back to given that their houses villages have been burnt to the ground and bull this have already been settled and some of the land that's right elizabeth the situation in northern rakhine state right now hasn't really changed the memoir authorities haven't really made the fundamental changes that are needed in order to ensure a safe and dignified return and to ken is absolutely right the villages have been burned. there's tremendous uncertainty about protection for anybody in northern
4:27 pm
rakhine state right now who is muslim and particularly for those who are ranger. so this is this is a big concern and you know at this point. the there's there's nothing really on the immediate horizon that would suggest any sort of refugee return is tenable mr temple or do we know what the actual terms of the agreements between the un and the government of myanmar between the government's bond that they have and myanma. very very transparent. may very well request you. will retain. effective security. protection.
4:28 pm
so the little. man with. very dangerous situation well i want to look more now at how we've got here at how the un is describing the world's fastest growing refugee crisis the u.n. calls it a began with an offensive by myanmar's army in august last year the military said it was responding to attacks by a group but the u.n. says it became a campaign of ethnic cleansing seven hundred thousand one hundred fled their homes most of them now in camps in neighboring bonn that there are doctors without borders believes six thousand seven hundred others were killed in the first month of violence and this international says what happened was systematic organized and ruthless and says culpability reaches the military's top ranks the reports of rapes
4:29 pm
looting and that is the revenge of a muslim minority in myanmar and the long being denied citizenship and basic human rights by the government which for god's them as illegal immigrants mr pun can let me come to you now with the latest report by amnesty international that we've mentioned they have named thirteen top military personnel who they think should be tried at the international criminal court for war crimes including rape murder forced starvation how likely do you think that is that they will go to the international criminal court. yeah we have to see of course yes that is right. especially if the main online senior dinner me online and other top they've been involved of course this is not a suddenly happen is quite systematic and you know what we have to see here is.
4:30 pm
the secret consul must run for international criminal court that is one point and unfortunately we have not seen that my strong of wise from security council members you know even you know u.k. is quite they are not strongly telling about it and you know of course russia and china they are there but we have not seen quite seriously about it you know the thing is we have to look at you know it's been already more than eight months now and it's not only. because sheen kyra and chan other ethnic minorities been you know facing this seriously whereas violation other parts of burma you know this impunity going on this is time right this is right time international community must support i see zero farland security calls musser far to the hague to burma is
4:31 pm
military and by his government including who are complicit in the genocide against that's what i can see mr smith just today we've heard from the chinese government china's top diplomat saying that they think that myanma is ready to take back the refugees how likely is it that china will support any u.n. security council action that would refer the government of myanmar to the international criminal court given that they are a key supporter of the government of. yeah that's a great it's an important question elizabeth and right now the u.n. security council member states should really be doing everything in their power and that includes in their bilateral relationships with china to century just get china to step aside and let justice run its course i mean no one's really asking anything of any action from china with regard to the situation really the the ask is for
4:32 pm
china to just step aside and let you have the u.n. security council refer the situation to the international criminal court for too long the diplomatic community has sort of rested on this notion that it's simply impossible because of china and i think if we have to get to the point where u.n. member states regard that as completely unacceptable and they use the political leverage that they use you know to ink other deals with with the government of china they need to use that type of leverage towards justice and human rights and we do think it is possible and it's as mr tune can said it's absolutely essential right now and mr template is it possible to sort of circumvent china and even myanmar on this because the international criminal court right now is looking at whether it can try myanmar for the crime deportation even though it's not a member state i mean can the i.c.c. get around that and do they have the will to do its. well to
4:33 pm
clear the room almost. there is a strong interest in the r.c.c. . africa missing of its case. and they would like to. write. it in this case it's very clear whether they. think. this because it does pressure russia likely. to the security council. well we've heard from. the de facto leader aung san suu kyi who's faced global criticism for not standing up more for the revenge of his supporters say that she has little control of on the actions and recent social media posts by cinci suggest that she blames meddling
4:34 pm
from a border for worsening divisions she said hate to gnash of from outside the country have driven the two communities for the pot so if we take what she's saying about this which is consistent with what she said since the military crackdown began mr temple it may come back to you you know how likely is it that the perpetrators all of these crimes will be held to account when this is the sort of narrative coming from the country's leader. well barry are right and i think the only ones that should tell who is also the situation where it's clearly driven by. many people who are. making trouble every military but certainly.
4:35 pm
very much in the wrong. oh there's a predator predator. pretty much. and i want to talk more about the repatriation because as we've said you know there is countries and organizations are continuing to talk about it mr tone can i believe there's something like a hundred and twenty thousand. living in the. camps what are the conditions like in those camps and what the revenger who in bangladesh now if they have a repatriated what they be living in the same source of cabs and facing the same conditions. for me as i am receiving information from the ground every day this is quite clear there will be the same situation these rohingya are when they are effect treated back that's why i mentioned earlier nobody want to return to it if you do camps at all sort of know what you want to return to prison camps at all you
4:36 pm
know these are people one hundred and twenty thousand in the sea to a it's been a kind of temporary but still there is no talk of origin a return to the ability as you know they are not proper getting proper and you know education and other health access at all that's why many rohingya flat many just you know by board the flight from these refugee camps you know this is barmy it's government and military says democratically destroying our community that's why we call it a general site you know we need to see also you know like kofi annan recombination commission already. calling for to close these i.d.p. camps are still we have not seen any positive and implementation on that so. politic and willingness from burma top military to annul de government from also so good there is no such a hope for the rohingya i can see there is no policy towards throwing
4:37 pm
a has changed nothing has changed instead situation is getting was so that's why we are calling here as their own india we know we need international protection too when during a repatriated back to burma without international proof protection this ruling it will face must atrocity against attorneys and i'm going to drive that isn't of them seventeen i mean it's not and i know that. mr snow said the international protection even be focusing on those one hundred twenty thousand that are living and camps for the un start would then. absolutely you know there have been avoidable deprivations in those internment camps and they are internment camps there are more than twenty internment camps in five different townships in rakhine state and there are as you mentioned elizabeth more than one hundred twenty thousand men women and children who are confined to
4:38 pm
those camps they're denied freedom of movement many of them are denied access to livelihoods their health needs maternal mortality is a very serious issue in those camps so there does need to be unfettered humanitarian access to those areas but more importantly you know it's really not sensible to be talking about returning refugees to rakhine state while the meum our government is confining more than one hundred twenty thousand to internment camps so those camps do need to be deconstructed as the anon commission recommended and those individuals and families living in those camps have a right to return and to rebuild their homes and they deserve reparations on top of that but unfortunately right now there are no indicators from the meum are stories that that's going to happen any time soon and mr temple you know one aspect of the story that is often overlooked is how all of this is impacting the many people of color and beyond the bases themselves who are already one of the most impoverished
4:39 pm
people in the world i think nearly a set of them live an extreme policy so what impact has some at least seven hundred thousand coming across the border had on people in that part of. what is the devastation. it causes the. tree. it's a very poor. place it's very severely barred expand it. it's. and it's great a little loose. since they would dramatically for. somebody who are especially russians i must dismiss i think bangladesh is spending something like a million dollars a day to sustain its own relief and security efforts where is this money coming from well right now there are huge shortfalls among the international aid
4:40 pm
organizations in terms of the the amount of resources that they need to provide even basic aid to the refugee population and you know bangladesh has done. a really great service to the ranger community to you know except the refugee population i was on the border when tens of thousands of people were pouring across and i could see the border guards going out of their way to ensure that refugees could make their way to a secure and safe place and i think that need to be acknowledged however there are other things happening on the ground in the camps and aid groups are having a difficult time doing their work due to some arbitrary restrictions that are being imposed by various authorities so i think the bangladesh authorities need to stay vigilant to ensure that the aid organizations that are operating there can work closely with religious communities to to provide. gentlemen we don't have very long
4:41 pm
left in the program and the last question to all of you the u.n. secretary general antonio tears is going to be in the region and beyond that they should in a couple of days to assess the severity of the crisis and what needs to be done what do you think needs to happen to to support the refugees living in bonn the days to support the bond that they she's themselves and to ensure that if a petri ation does happen it is not forced and does not send the russian back into harms way missed its own can let me start with you. yes great to see he's busy it into the. hams in next week that is very good first thing what i want to say we would like to see you know the u.n. a.c.r. . u.n.h.c.r. myanmar government and u.n. d.p. agreement there is that is. there is no transparency on that agreement we
4:42 pm
asked the rohingya as the big teams has a refugee is they did not consult with any representative of this community this is very very disturbing and i do not think this is totally you know. it is totally not. it's really not i don't see this is this would walk because you know rohingya they want to be consulted with the u.n. a c.r. sale and for want. they need to see mr template what about you. seriously.
4:43 pm
and mr smith. i agree with mr temple i agree with mr tin can in addition to that i would just add that it's absolutely essential that the secretary general send a very clear message to perpetrators and me and more that this type of behavior is completely unacceptable in the perpetrators will be held accountable this message of accountability is absolutely essential but beyond that there needs to be action and so we would also like to see the secretary general apply pressure to the u.n. security council to refer the situation to the criminal international criminal court and missed a turn can just last the you know so much of this has been caused by the fact that the revenge of don't have legal rights as citizens in myanmar has anything been done has any action being taken by the government there to give them more legal status or protection. though we didn't see.
4:44 pm
anything from the government side at all because you meant by barbara means government right yes you know burmese government this been a systematic prosecution going on since maintenance is due to you know after nine hundred seventy eight we have to you know of many operations against rohingya so. what i can see here is we need to see the solution from not inside burma at all because as a whole burma you know us deep you go by us d.p. party you know the government of military security flaws police for first nobody want to see rule he has the cities and unfortunately even though we have glorious pacifist abolishment. they don't recall the nice us so the solution will come from international level so we need international community protection and you know also when you have secretary general because it we need to see you know a very near future i don't think this or if we do will be trying to burma at all so
4:45 pm
as a counter act of this went by his government and military destroy you know a community we need to counteract to rebuild to empire our our community and refuted chems or is that when we can move forward you know because we need protection all right major garrett and i'm afraid it will run out it's time to building others need to be done thank you very much for your time there is john ken and geneva matthew smith and kuala lumpur and robert templer in boston and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website al-jazeera dot com and to further discussion and to go to our facebook page that facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story you can also join the conversation on twitter i had a list at a.j. and five story from the end of the front and the whole team here i for now. when the news is restricted and send said the press is not free it is external
